Boy Scouts Of America Recall Pin Over Lead Violation

The Boy Scouts of America, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), have issued a recall of its Cub Scouts outdoor activity pin due to a violation of the federal lead content ban.

The rhomboid-shaped outdoor activity pin is silver with a gold animal paw painted on a blue background. The pin’s face and shaft contain levels of lead that exceed the federal lead content ban. There have been no incidents or injuries reported due to the pins, which were available through Boy Scouts of America retail stores and authorized distributors nationwide and online from April 2016 through January 2020. The pins were manufactured in China and imported by Symbol Arts, LLC of Ogden, Utah.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled pin away from children and return the pin to any Boy Scouts of America retail store or contact Boy Scouts of America’s National Distribution Center for a full refund, including shipping, or for a merchandise credit.
